In a continuation of their “Technology Legends” theme, the Vancouver Enterprise Forum is presenting a fireside chat with local tech legend Mossadiq Umedaly on Tuesday, November 25th at the Vancity Theatre.
Umedaly is used to doing things big. At Ballard Power Systems he helped to grow the company value from $10 million to $6 billion. At Xantrex Technology he transformed the company from a small niche player to a world leader in advanced power electronics, with revenues growing from $10 million to $234 million when it was sold Schneider Electric for $500 million this September.
With Jeff Petersen as the moderator, Umedaly will talk about the challenges both Ballard and Xantrex faced from their early days through their successful IPOs, advice on growing a small company into a major success, his views on strategic partnerships and the evolving alternative energy sector.
